Fresh Food for Toy Manchester Terriers
As their name implies, the Toy Manchester terrier was bred in Manchester, England to hunt small game and rats. Standing 10 to 12 inches tall and weighing less than 12 pounds, these little pups make delightful companions. They are affectionate with their family members and good with kids. Overall, they like people but will bark to let you know a stranger is approaching your home. Lively and intelligent, TMTs need lots of exercise each day and enjoy going on walks and playing fetch with a ball. Their short black and tan coat is easy to maintain—all you have to do is bath them every once in a while.
What’s the best dog food for Toy Manchester terriers?
A diet of fresh food for your Toy Manchester Terrier is the best way to support their health and happiness—along with walks and play time, regular vet care, and a loving family.
Why fresh is best for your Toy Manchester Terriers
Highly processed kibble can contribute to many issues that can compromise your Toy Manchester Terriers’s health. Recipes from The Farmer’s Dog are made with fresh, human-grade ingredients, steamed to retain nutrients, and pre-portioned to help maintain weight.Feed Fresh Today
Toy Manchester terriers are prone to joint issues. Maintaining a lean body condition can help. And fresh food from The Farmer’s Dog contains Omega-3 fatty acids, proven to reduce inflammation and improve arthritis. Even if kibble contains these healthy fats, they can go rancid sitting on the shelf for long periods. Rancid fats don’t deliver the intended health benefits, and in fact can contribute to inflammation. Fresh food delivers these powerful nutrients intact to your Toy Manchester terrier.
Promote better digestion (and poops)
A fresh diet provides human-grade, highly digestible protein, which contributes to many facets of your Toy Manchester terrier's health. It supports optimal muscle growth and maintenance and a strong heart. Another hallmark of a digestible diet is what we call “high quality poops.” Research shows that a digestible, bioavailable diet affects the quality and quantity of your dog’s poop—making it less voluminous, and less stinky, than their poop on a kibble diet!
Know what’s in the bowl
For Toy Manchester terriers with dry and itchy skin, sensitive stomachs, or other signs of food allergies and sensitivities, it’s important to know exactly what you’re feeding—something that can be impossible with kibble, which often contains ingredients not listed on the bag. Allergies and intolerances to food are all too common and many dog owners notice symptoms clear up when they switch to fresh food.
Maintain a healthy weight
It’s critically important to avoid overfeeding any dog, big or small. Being even a little overweight can increase your Toy Manchester terrier's odds of developing a host of diseases like arthritis, diabetes, and even cancer. A fresh-food plan, tailored to your dog’s needs, and delivered in pre-portioned packs, makes weight maintenance easy.
